The RM 11-05, built in cermet and resistant like a diamond

Richard Mille’s RM 11-05 is made with an innovative material known as cermet. This material is a "high-tech" ceramic compound not at all similar to the traditional ceramic that we all know.

However, we must admit that the two materials share some characteristics. All ceramics are solid inorganic, non-metallic compounds with a strong molecular bond. As a result, they boast superior hardness and extremely high melting points: up to 2000 ° C and above.

The avant-garde watchmaker Richard Mille once again amazed with the debut of the RM 11-05 Automatic Flyback Chronograph GMT, whose case and bezel are made of gray cermet, a ceramic and metal composite, light as titanium and hard like diamond.

Typically used in the aerospace, automotive and ballistics industries, cermet takes its color from the combination of a zirconium metal matrix with high-performance ceramic inserts.

Perfecting the material required years of research and development in collaboration with the IMI Group, which specializes in microtechnology solutions for luxury goods manufacturers.

As for the complexity of the movement of the watch, we can say that the self-winding movement, made of titanium, includes a flyback chronograph, a UTC function, a rotor with variable geometry and about 55 hours of power reserve.

Limited to 140 pieces, it retails for just, so to speak, $ 215,000.
